A HEART-BREAKING COMEDY ABOUT CIRCUS LIFE AND LIFE ITSELF

Henrietta cherishes her family's kooky existence working as clowns for a small, shabby traveling circus. As far as she is concerned, she has it better than any twelve-year-old on the planet. But one shocking day, life throws a pie right in her kisser—in the form of a hitand-run accident that takes away a loved one. Henrietta must use all her clowning skills and a whole lot more to pick herself up and face a future full of change.
